I needed shrimps so Monello and I rode the bikes to Dirty Al's and had boiled shrimp (I know, I know) for appy, and fried shrimp for dinner, Then we walked to Mahi Nic's next door for a sunset frozen margarita.
It's a lovely day on the island and if anyone needs encouragement to run away from home and be a beach bum, let me know and I will encourage like crazy.
On our last day open for business, my wonderful co workers made home made lasagna, parmesan garlic bread and salads plus Cannolis. Of course when we went to eat, the store got bombarded with people (not a bad thing but we were all hungry!)
It was delicious and I appreciate their thoughtfulness. I am still full and will skip dinner.
Woke up and wanted some home made chicken noodle soup...so I put it all together and then thought it would be good with dumplings. My house smelled so good!
Note to self: check dates on Bisquick...they were gross and no matter how long I cooked them, they were like rocks. Scooped them out, filed them under G (for gar-bage) and had a bowl and it was still pretty tasty.
Normally, I don't throw stuff away because it is expired but in this case it was 3 years old and clearly not good any more. Looking forward to dinner
I wanted something sweet. Had a cranberry bread mix from Krusteau (sp?) but it needed something. Mixed up a cream cheese filling, substituted Splenda for sugar and added almond paste. Put it in a loaf pan, but having done this before, I knew I had to reduce the heat or it burns on top. Calls for 350, put it in the toaster oven at 300 and added 10 minutes.
Made a great desert and goes well with the morning coffee.
